Experienced retreat leader guides participants through the principles and steps of the 12-step program in six one-hour talks. There are 12 step meetings for each program.. Recovery, fellowship and the 12 steps are the focus of these weekends. These retreats are not affiliated with any 12 step program.

Started by John Ratner for those in AA and Al-Anon in 1972, our tradition continues and we welcome newcomers along with long-timers to attend one or more a year. "Leave your troubles at the bottom of the hill", and join us on a spiritual path. Hiking trails, streams, a pond surrounded by benches for meditation and quiet reflection make this a very special place.

Experienced retreat leaders will guide us through the principles and steps of program in 6 one-hour talks. Meals are served buffet style with delicious, healthy choices. Beverages are always available. All linens, towels provided. There is also free time to enjoy the swimming pool (May-Oct), do some step work, fellowship, and naps!.
